Dave Biro became fascinated with electronic music the second he watched Rick Wakeman perform in the late 1960s.  He soon set off on an odyssey to create his own instrument.  Dave worked to develop a synthesizer that would respond faster than those available at the time and increase the possibilities of creating a larger number of tone sounds and control.  The BiroTron soon gained the attention of many keyboardists and has since gathered a rather loyal fan base.
